They really are trying hard to change the focus to leakers, diverting from the bigger picture that Trump and his campaign are under investigation :P

Are they seriously suggesting they might limit the intelligence activities and surveillance - after years of resisting, after Snowden etc - but because it cost one Republican appointee his job when he was caught?

And Republicans now pushing Comey to condemn/equate reporters who published leaked information as culpable as the leaker if information is classified.

I'm not even sure what Trump's trying to get at here?

Just hints at come vague conspiracy between Com/FBI and Obama?

Straight up lying now

He Tweeted that at the same time they were testifying Russia seemed to be "loud" in their interference, hoping it would be publicised and undermine faith in democratic process.

The wiretap news must surely impact with the house and senate GOP. Not only did he make an allegation based on nothing, he's continued to not row it back, in fact eventually embroiling the UK and Germany in it. And it has all been self inflicted. With this embarassment in the Oval Office, collusion or not, Putin has got what he wanted.

Probably not, but a new Gallup poll released today showed Trump's approval ratings hitting a new low since he was inaugurated:

President Donald Trump’s approval rating is at a low 37 percent, according to Gallup daily tracking poll results released Monday.

A solid majority of Americans polled, 58 percent, said they disapprove of the president’s job performance.

The results represent Trump’s worst results in the poll since his inauguration in January and a swing from just over a week ago, on March 11, when 45 percent of those surveyed told Gallup they approved of the president’s job performance (49 percent said they disapproved then).

As recorded by Gallup, Trump’s approval rating has been under water every day since his inauguration except for three, and for many of those days, the poll registered majority disapproval of the president.

Former President Barack Obama’s low point in the Gallup tracking poll was 38 percent job approval, which he hit a few times (he averaged 47.9 percent over his presidency). Former President George W. Bush’s lowest approval rating in the poll was 25 percent.

The tracking poll, based on a three-day rolling average, has a sample size of about 1,500 adults and a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Meanwhile, Ivanka's getting a West Wing office of her own now:

In everything but name, the first daughter is settling in as what appears to be a full-time staffer in her father’s administration, with a broad and growing portfolio — except she is not being sworn in, will hold no official position, and is not pocketing a salary, her attorney said.

Ivanka Trump’s role, according to her attorney Jamie Gorelick, will be to serve as the president’s “eyes and ears” while providing broad-ranging advice, not just limited to women’s empowerment issues. Last week, for instance, Ivanka Trump raised eyebrows when she was seated next to Angela Merkel for the German chancellor’s first official visit to Trump’s White House.

As her role in the White House grows — a role that comes with no playbook — Ivanka Trump plans to adhere to the same ethics and records retention rules that apply to government employees, Gorelick said, even though she is not technically an employee. But ethics watchdogs immediately questioned whether she is going far enough to eliminate conflicts of interest, especially because she will not be automatically subjected to certain ethics rules while serving as a de facto White House adviser.

How long before Trump brings his other kids in too?

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Do you mean Heck? He's a Democrat representative. The 'Rep.' before their name always throws me off at first. :lol:

The (D) or (R) tells you which party they belong to.
